EV Grieve Eatery Etc: Plants for 325 Bowery; cherries for Cherry Tavern; Latin for Italian place

Bello's, the Italian place on St. Mark's near Avenue A...



...is ready to debut a new menu.... (and their entire menu of soon-to-be-leftover Italian fare is now 30 percent off...)



The new diner coming to Bowery and Second Street shows off its new plants....




East Village Thai on Seventh Street near Cooper Union is closed for renovations...



...and, based on the sign, it doesn't seem to be reopening anytime soon...



On Sixth Street near Avenue A... the always-reliable Cherry Tavern...

...now has some cherries outside... (and, uh, I can't say for sure when this happened....)




The Film Academy Cafe on Astor Place East wants you to eat wine...



The new restaurant coming to Second Avenue and Second Street has some fancy lights embedded in the sidewalk...



And if you're a fan of Il Bagatto on Second Street near Avenue B, they're closed per usual this time of year until after Labor Day....



The former dry cleaners here on 11th Street near Second Avenue...



...has moved into the former Plump Dumpling space next door... Plump Dumpling moved to the corner at Second Avenue in December, of course...

Love the cherries on Cherry Tavern. Just wish they'd change the awning. It's stylistically so off from the rest of the decor. It looks cheap and not in a good way and like someone made it in a community college design class for a nail salon.

Never been to Cherry Tavern. If I have I don't remember. When's a good night to go?

I don't recall ever being there at a *bad* time... thought that does not include the usual prime time places when the yunnies are out and it's just not safe. Anywhere.

Speaking of Bello's maybe you ought to remind people do carefully review their checks before paying..I had my 'experience' there and I have heard so do others. What a shitty way to make a profit, huh?
